It’s that time…Black Friday is here and we’re discussing the season with Mario Acevedo’s Felix Gomez.
The first and only vampire book to be declassified by the federal government . . .Felix Gomez went to Iraq a soldier. He came back a vampire.
Now he finds himself pulled into a web of intrigue when an old friend prompts him to investigate an outbreak of nymphomania at the secret government facilities in Rocky Flats. He’ll find out the cause of all these horny women or die trying! But first he must contend with shadowy government agents, Eastern European vampire hunters, and women who just want his body . . .
Skewering sexual myths, conspiracy fables, and government bureaucracy, The Nymphos of Rocky Flats reveals the bizarre world of the undead with a humorous slant and a fresh twist.
If Felix gets your interest, make sure you check out the first book in the Felix Gomez series, The Nymphos of Rocky Flats.
This year, his planned day to buy presents for his circle of friends gift exchange falls on Pearl Harbor Day. That date alone sets him in a gloomy mood. Since he was a veteran of the Iraq War, remembering the attack that dragged the US into World War Two stokes the lingering heartache from his own military service. He lost good buddies, and he lost his humanity. Literally. He went into combat as a human and came back undead.
So after poking around the stores and finding nothing worth spending his money on, Felix makes his way to the closest watering hole and perches himself on a stool. It’s a newly opened hipster bar, but the service is prompt and the wait staff make for good eye candy. No one notices that he casts no shadow or reflection in the mirror behind the bar. All that matters is that he handed over a Visa card and is keeping his tab open.
At the moment, Felix decides to postpone his shopping excursion to another time. Today he’ll hoist a drink and toast fallen comrades, both the known and the unknown.
Seasons Greetings and a Happy New Year.
Meet Mario Acevedo!
Ten years ago, I got “The Call.” That is, my agent called to say that I had been offered a contract for my Felix Gomez series. Five vampire novels, a graphic novel, some short fiction, and numerous ghost-written books later, I’m still here. In the meantime I’ve had some adventures and met a lot of great people, artists and writers, mostly.
My big lesson in this journey? Man, is there a big gulf between my world and reality. And so what? I prefer my delusions. The truth would be an unseemly thing for a professional liar like myself.
